I take it that you have a hard top?

Added Sea Foam to a tank of gas and drove her around town a bit, then took her on the highway. No major acceleration difference with the little 4-banger, but I put it in 5th and was able to hold speed! Major accomplishment. I was even able to accelerate somewhat in 5th gear, that was unheard of before!
I will give it a few tanks of gas, just to make sure the Sea Foam itself isn't adding to the hp, but I am definitely impressed!
what is Sea Foam? i've heard of people using it but haven't seen it on the west coast.

If your injectors are dirty - dump a can into your gas tank and you will notice a differance in performance before you reach the end of your driveway!

i love lucas myself..after hearing about all the smoke it must be cleaning the motor up inside..i may just try it on my 97tj with 135,000 miles to see if it makes the lifters any more quite..probally be better off with a cam and lifter change tho..
